Talent and HR News Weekly Roundup: Hiring and Keeping the Best of the Best

We challenge you to attempt three things for your recruiting and retention strategy. First, hire the right employee. Second, hire the best of the best. Third, keep the best of the best. Easy, right? Not quite. These are some of the toughest things startup and growing businesses face. Everyone is looking at hiring and keeping the best of the best. Here is some of the latest thinking around how to do this in this week's weekly roundup.

1) When It Comes to Hiring and Keeping Great Employees, How Do You Stack Up Against the Best? from Inc.

"Consider benchmarking your hiring, salary setting, and mentorship strategies against those of the fastest-growing U.S. companies. Last year, Sam Bacharach, Cornell professor and co-founder of the Bacharach Leadership group, surveyed  more than 300 Inc. 5000 firms to find out how America's fastest-growing companies recruit and develop their best employees. The infographic below displays his results."

Thursday Lunch Break: Listen to Your Content

Work or work out? That is the question. Ever since I was little, I've been active in some way. I took ballet for 15 years and played lacrosse, field hockey, tennis and softball in school.  As an adult, I've made a failed attempt at marathon training (thanks left knee for the fun surgery) and now practice yoga, play golf, ski, and do strength training. I try to get in some sort of activity every, single day.  

But an hour in the gym or outside can feel really wasted. Even though I know it's good for me I'm always thinking I should be working or learning. (I know, I know.)  So I was intrigued when I heard about Guide. Turning my news into sound? From an avatar? I hate sci-fi (my husband watches Battlestar Gallactica all alone) and quite frankly, it sounded weird. But think about what this means for how we consume content. Crazy right?

So curious what you think. You've got to check this out:
